A Most Delicious Tweetup at Farmers Hawaii

Being a social media giants, I don’t have to attend very many tweetups (that’s a joke people), but I couldn’t resist Farmers Hawaii hosting a tweetup focusing on Community Engagement on the Web. This was a most delicious event!

Amuse bouche by Liliha Bakery and superb pupus made by Chef Elmer from Poke Stop were sandwiched around a delectable panel of knowledgeable guests. Daniel Leuck of TechHui, Randy Ching of Civil Beat, John Tapper of Farmers Hawaii, and Dan Zelikman of Starrtech talked about their successes and struggles using social media and the web to engage their respective communities. Each panel member had a different perspective reflective of their user base, and it was interesting to hear the similarities and differences. Holding contests, featuring members, variable subscription rates, empowered and passionate community managers were mentioned as engagement tips with the only common tip being “work hard and keep working at it.”

Ooops, how can I forget to mention Ryan Ozawa as the moderating maitre d’? He kept the topical courses paced and moving along very well!

Thanks to Farmers Hawaii for a most delicious tweetup, and I can’t wait for the next one!

If you missed it, here are some pictures.
